“Wish we could stay forever”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Start with the niggle. Location wise it is nicely situated in terms of peace and quiet as well as being in the 'real' part of Bangkok. However, it must be pointed out that if you're out drinking or Sukhumvit or another 'central' area and want a taxi, quite a few were not interested in coming, so if centrality is important there may be a slight issue.
Truly though, this Homestay is well named. Four nights staying here and it feels like home, it feels like a place that you can instantly relax but also that you're being looked after at all times. The building itself has been ingeniously renovated to maximise both space and aesthetics, while the rooms are just gorgeous (we experienced both the smaller and larger rooms - both are fabulous value but the junior suite on the 5th floor is most highly recommended). The little details, such as being able to borrow the machine machine whenever necessary and then magically having a drying stand appear outside your room, alongside the delicious pastries and use of all the pantry's contents, made our stay here blissful.

We came from an open jaw trip in Cambodia and headed to Bangkok to celebrate my birthday. It was a very tiring 8 hour bus trip. When we arrived and saw the suite, I was totally overwhelmed because I did not realize that it was that great. It was beautiful, comfortable, clean, relaxing, and sweet!

They also have a very scenic view on their rooftop where you can think peacefully. In the morning, small breakfast like biscuits, breads that you can toast with different jams are available, coffees also. My mother also washed our clothes because they had washing machines. They taught us tips on how to handle tuk-tuk drivers and gave directions on where to go and eat. I felt home.

What surprised me more was, they bought me a birthday cake - which I have totally forgotten about buying it once we arrive. I initially asked for the fee and they said that it was "on the house". I was like, "Are you serious?". I was very speechless and couldn't not imagine someone from another country would do that very touching and exceptional customer service. I brought the box back home and I wished I could also bring the plastic knife. :)

Very helpful and friendly staff (family-run), they go the extra mile to help you and to make the most of your stay.
Beautiful place with very nice rooms, quite close to the center yet not in a very touristy area which gives you the possibility to discover something new and off the beaten tracks.
Wonderful base to explore the city but itself so comfy and homey that you can easily spend some time in your room/the hotel.

We had stayed at a more basic hotel in Bangkok, and decided to upgrade to the Loog Choob for the extra nights we were there, it proved to be an excellent decision. My partner had been quite sick for a few days, and the day we moved hotels was one of her worst, so when we walked into our room, it honestly felt like we had hit the jackpot! It was just what she needed, the room is spacious, and beautifully decorated, the bathroom is also lovely and well equipped.

Do not be quick to judge the location of Loog Choob! We arrived late at night and the owner was outside waiting for us with a huge smile. Everyone was imcredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble! Facilities are brilliant - there is a washing machine available for use and although loog choob don't provide breakfast we had crossiants waiting for us in the kitchen area every morning. Beautifully designed home stay that 6 weeks into our travels still remains at the top of our ever increasing list of accomodations! Thank you for a wonderful stay and we hope to return soon!

We stayed here during our first night in Bangkok. We took the junior suite which was very good. Amazing shower, good bed and nice patio outside of the room and even better rooftop!

The owner is amazing advised us on all kinds of things. When you arrive you get a small map so taxi's can find loog choob. Also a book is given including the most known scams in Thailand. This is amazing when tourists visit Thailand for the first time (was our second time).


Two things were missing for us: one no breakfast included and two a pool. But we knew that this was not included. Other then that an amazing stay we would definitely come back here.

I stayed in this hotel for one night when my group of 3 people first landed in Bangkok on Tuesday 12th March, the flight was delayed by 6 hours so I emailed ahead to let them know. When we arrived they had everything ready for us and appreciated that we just wanted to go straight to sleep. We had two twin rooms for this night, both extremely clean and spacious.

We then returned to Loog Choob at the end of our trip before flying home for 3 nights, this time we stayed in a Junior Suite. I cannot fault this accommodation all of the owners were extremely friendly and helpful and it was a joy to return to this accommodation after a crazy day/night in Bangkok.

The rooms were immaculate and had everything that we needed, cannot recommend highly enough.
